Sweet Mum Quilt;
Finished and Delivered!
I have come back from my big trip to Holland. 750 miles driven in the car in 5 days, celebrated my mum's birthday, visited some friends and even more shops (no, no quiltshops, this was mum's time so no time for that....) as well as doing several things together that are definitely easier with two.
I now need a week's holidays at least to recover ! (but thank you Lauranie for wishing me a restful time... I somehow suspected it would be rather busy!!) but it was nice to go and see my mum and after all, a change is as good as a rest so the saying goes...
I also had the chance to catch up with a dear friend I don't often see, and her family which was absolutely wonderful.
Ok, you all want to know about the quilt.... well....I machine pieced it, hand appliqued and hand quilted it. I spent the night before her birthday sewing the label on still and here it is ;
I don't have a better photo than this as the weather was rather dull so this was the best in the circumstances I could do.. so no rather nice pics with cows in the background like I was planning!
and the happy birthday girl herself with the quilt;
This at special request of Susan (Flossyblossoms) for a pic of her, with my thanks for giving me the name for the quilt. You kept asking how the quilt for my sweet mum was getting on... so I referred to it and called it "Sweet Mum Quilt".
And Sweet Mum liked it very much! She says thank you very much to all who wished her a happy birthday around the world.
I'll catch up with everyone later in the week (and with my other posts and things...) trying to get straight and into the groove again first! It was only a week but it feels like I have been away for ever!
